Official Fantasy Bundesliga Managers take note: bundesliga.com is on hand to provide likely line-ups as well as injury and suspension news ahead of Matchday 7.
Christoph Janker appears likeliest to replace the injured Jeffrey Gouweleeuw in central defence for FC Augsburg, but should Gojko Kacar drop back, options open for Markus Feulner or Jan Moravek to come into midfield. Jonathan Schmid is expected to get the nod ahead of Halil Altintop in attack for the hosts.
FC Schalke 04 coach Markus Weinzierl may choose to opt for the same staring XI to that which began the recent 4-0, Breel Embolo-inspired victory against Borussia Monchengladbach. Should that be the case, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Max Meyer would keep their places in the bench.
